I remembered feeling lost sometimes when doing math. For most of my secondary and JC education math was a clear struggle for me. But after joining Achevas, I felt that I was not alone in my struggles and was being patiently guided one step at a time. Jack’s emphasis on the core ideas of each topic to the intense drilling of classic or ‘in trend’ questions greatly helped me retackle my unstable math foundation. What makes Jack’s lessons even more valuable was his earnestness to answer questions and clarifications after class and even beyond tuition, proving his genuine interest in helping his students to the best of his abilities. I remembered texting often questions or doubts I had in math, sometimes during awkward junctures of the day and I can always count that Jack would guide me. Beyond being just a tuition teacher, Jack is a mentor, a cheerleader in some way who silently tracks my progress. His ability to build rapport with students truly instilled greater confidence in me in math, as well as allow me to understand my misguided approach in math accumulated over the years. Overall Jack’s guidance in math has been a truly enriching one that I am very thankful for.
